Six Aussie Acts Among First SXSW 2014 Lineup

Austin, Texas’s favourite son, the one and only South By Southwest festival, has today announced its first rather large handful of musicians slated to play the 2014 edition, with six Australian acts making an appearance on the bill.

Sydneysiders The Swiss are set to rock SXSW next March, while Western Australia is repping with Fremantle power pop outfit The Chevelles. Melburnians Vance Joy, People Of Letters and Money For Rope have all made the bill, as well as Sydney-bred, London-based singer-songwriter Josef Salvat.

Other prominent acts amongst the first 182 acts announced to grace the many stages include Urge Overkill, London Grammar, Eliza Doolittle and Lene Lovich. SXSW 2014 takes place between 11th and 16th March – just enough time for you to start planning your pilgrimage to Texas.
